Augusta, Ga--After riding the high of winning the Peach Belt touranament on their home court, it's been business as usual this week for Augusta. The new business at hand, the NCAA regional, which starts on Saturday.
The Jags haven't lost in a month and a half and riding a 13 game win streak as they head to Charlotte. Up first, Francis Marion, a familiar foe. Augusta beat them both times, both games decided by just five points. While they'd just assume play someone else to open up, it shows the depth of the conference.
"I'm tired of playing PBC teams man! If we beat Francis Marion, we're going to play Aiken again, so it's crazy. It just shows you how good the Peach Belt is this year. Kudos to them, kudos to Aiken, kudos to Pembroke. We're just going out here and do the same game plan and execute the same way we always do." said Tyvez Monroe
"We played Francis Marion towards the end of the season. I would argue Francis Marion game up there, was the first game on the road and getting a good win and I'm sitting there saying maybe we'll be okay this year" said Dip Metress
More then okay as Augusta now has 26 wins on the year which is the most they've had since the 2010-2011 season when they won 30 games.
